BREAKING McCord Up To Her Neck In Flynn Prosecution Conspiracy

Originally Published Under Header: Deep Stater Mary McCord Also Wants Your Guns
 

April 29, 2020 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Readers, please note the original publish date on this item - October 10, 2019.

Note: this article is currently under revision to reflect blockbuster developments in DOJ's malicious prosecution of General Michael Flynn. We  suggest that the reader should refresh the page occasionally so that the most recent edit will be made available, this notice will be removed when the edit has been completed - ED

Mary McCord, who abruptly and suspiciously resigned from DOJ right before the Flynn case became radioactive, was deeply involved in the conspiracy to fraudulently prosecute then National Security Advisor General Michael Flynn. General Flynn, in additional to innumerable career achievements, served in the US Army, primarily as an intelligencd officer, for 33 years, including combat assignments.

As we go to press, Flynn's attorney Sydney Powell has forced the FBI to provide the exculpatory evidence which had been witheld. The money line is: The FBI witheld the evidence because it PROVES the existence of a conpiracy directly set in motion by former President Obama, to destroy the Trump presidency before Donald Trump was even sworn in. The following transcripted from notes; we have a very good idea who the author was and will confirm upon further building of evidence. Regardless, this nukes the entire chain of command from Obama, through his Attorneys General all the way to the Director of FBI, James Comey - who had better retain defense counsel immediately.

“What is our goal? Truth/Admission or to get him to lie so we can prosecute him or get him fired?” 


The documents memorialize the motive going after Flynn in the first place, plotting to take out what it considered the low hanging fruit, knowing that opened a path towards attacking President Trump, their ultimate goal. This is a TEXTBOOK case of treason and yes we thoroughly understand the enormity of such a charge.

Please proceed therefore, more fully informed. ED

Republish: Though few outside the DC Swamp have ever heard of her, Mary McCord has a lot of juice when it comes to Deep State intrigue.

As Ellen Nakashima of the WashPost wrote on May 11, 2017, “At the end of January, Mary B. McCord had a ringside seat to history [she was the] career attorney overseeing the high-profile Justice Department probe into potential collusion between associates of President Trump and the Kremlin…”

That would mean that McCord was the key DOJ counter-intelligence officer [Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General for the National Security Division] at roughly the time that Donald Trump was taking the Oath of Office and therefore a high level player in the events that would culminate in the disaster of the Mueller Witch Hunt.

Actually, the wording of Nakashima’s piece is so intriguing it bears further clarification:

“[McCord] accompanied the acting attorney general, Sally Yates , to the White House to warn the president’s lawyer that the national security adviser was at risk of being blackmailed, according to an individual familiar with the matter…Yates brought McCord along because, “it was important” to bring a career national security professional. After all, McCord “had been the one who was most intimately familiar” with the facts, said Yates, who did not name the attorney in congressional testimony…”

Just for the record, that National Security Advisor would have been Lt. General Michael Flynn. Per Wiki – “He [Flynn] became a senior advisor to Trump during his presidential campaign and served as the National Security Advisor from January 23 to February 13, 2017.”

Little Commies - Administrative Aggression In The Face Of Falling Wuhan Cases

By WILLIAM MAYER

April 27, 2020 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org – As regular readers are aware, this author has been writing about everything Wuhan for nearly the entirety of the month [please refer to Season of the Anointed , Comrade Fauci and Field Marshall Birx - The New High Priests of Scientism and Socialist Realism – Engineering How Things Should Be ].

During this period of time, in many states those seeking access to medical care of a non-emergency nature are finding that numerous roadblocks have been placed between themselves and their ultimate care providers. This is the case throughout California’s San Francisco, Bay Area which is now under the command of the counties’ various public health czars who are exercising extraordinary powers.

These bureaucrats are entirely unaccountable to the citizens who must foot the bill as well as bear the pain caused by an imposed, or tightly regulated shutdown of commerce, freedom of speech, movement and assembly.

Additionally some of the largest health care providers in the state have hidden their doctors away from any contact with the public, outside of the nightmare environment of emergency rooms, which are full of people with non-critical complaints. Not knowing how widespread the practice is, but having gained a bit of perspective based upon reliable sources, it seems that the reality of health care provision including complicated diagnoses, in many cases are being made over the telephone. This includes the writing of prescriptions. In some cases, for highly informed patients this might work reasonably well but for the average ill person it means making judgments that are not fully informed.

As many are aware, at this point the master plan for dealing with the Wuhan flu is being entirely directed on a grand scale by the nation’s various public health entities, most prominently America’s NIH/CDC Leviathan - the Fauci/Birx Circus. At the micro-level, county health departments have assumed larger-than-life roles, enabled here in California by Governor Newsome’s Declaration of Emergency – N35-20, which grants the governor nearly total power to act as well as delegate exercise of that power to various state and local governmental entities.

Section 8 of that declaration is chilling; it grants the governor the unprecedenyed power to use:

“…the State’s power to commandeer property - hotels and other places of temporary residence…as necessary for quarantining, isolating or treating individuals who test positive…”

There is more than circumstantial evidence pointing to the desire by Newsom and his county level henchmen to use this crisis as an opportunity to further collectivize the state and bring it into compliance with the Marxist notion of “socialist realism,” how things should be:

According to the California Globe,  during a recent Sacramento press gaggle when California’s pretty-boy governor Newsom was asked by a Bloomberg reporter about the “opportunity” that the Wuhan hysteria might provide, he replied:

“There is opportunity for reimagining a [more] progressive era as it [relates] to capitalism, so yes, absolutely we see this as an opportunity to reshape the way we do business and how we govern."

The visceral antipathy towards market capitalism now on display by Newsom, his leftist brethren and the state’s GOP useful idiots should be of real concern to the citizenry. But that isn’t the case, please read on, it’s as if pod-people are actually walking the streets and occasionally even voting.

CAIR Interferes In Iowa Election - Refuses To Express Support For U.S. Constitution

By STEPHEN M. KIRBY, PhD

April 18, 2020 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Rick Phillips is one of the candidates running in the Iowa Republican primary for Iowa District 2 in the U.S. House of Representatives. Phillips is quite outspoken about Islam and a number of other topics and candidly discusses many issues at his campaign website, The Swamp Fox. Phillips recently came to the attention of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).

On April 13, 2020, various Republican leaders in Iowa received the following e-mail from CAIR:

"Dear State Leaders of the Republican Party of Iowa:

On behalf of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation's largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, I write to call on the Republican Party of Iowa to repudiate the Islamophobic, unconstitutional statements of a GOP congressional candidate in Iowa who claims Islam should be eliminated from the United States… Rick Phillips, candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives District IA-02, states on his campaign website that “Islam should be recognized as a hostile ideology antithetical to the United States Constitution” and that “It should have its religious status revoked.” He also falsely claims that a “mosque is nothing more than a military outpost where the seeds of hatred are sown against our country...”

CAIR believes that these statements do not reflect the core values of your party. We look forward to your written response and swift action. In the meantime, please let us know if you have any questions.

Sincerely,

Robert S. McCaw - CAIR Director of Government Affairs Department"

Later that day one of those Republican leaders forwarded CAIR’s e-mail to me, and I responded:

Mr. McCaw,

I was forwarded your e-mail and felt it was necessary to correct some of your claims.

You noted that the following statement was on Mr. Phillips’ website:

Islam should be recognized as a hostile ideology antithetical to the United States Constitution.

In reality, core tenets of Islam are in irreconcilable conflict with the U.S. Constitution. This is the focus of my latest book in which I show that conflict between Islamic Doctrine and the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 8th, 13th, and 14th Amendments to the U.S. Constitution: Islamic Doctrine versus the U.S. Constitution: The Dilemma for Muslim Public Officials. One can download a free PDF copy of my book Primer on Islamic Doctrine v. U.S Constitution, courtesy of the Center For Security Policy.

This “dilemma” for Muslim public officials is glaringly apparent in the data shown at the website for The Muslim Oath Project: http://www.liberato.us/muslim-oath-project.html.

At this website you can see the list of Muslim public officials/candidates to whom I have presented four questions that require a choice to be made between supporting the U.S. Constitution/our man-made laws or Islamic Doctrine. At this point I have contacted 181 Muslim public officials/candidates (and this number will grow) with those four questions. Of these 181, only 11 expressed support for the U.S. Constitution, and of those 11, three did not give me permission to mention their names. This is very concerning.

Wuhan Hysteria - Killing Global Commerce In Hope Of Defeating Trump

April 16, 2020 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - As many of our more astute readers have already concluded, there is no such thing as a fact-based analysis of American influenza deaths on a year-by-year basis. It’s impossible for a host of reasons and the CDC lists 5 major factors that complicate the calculation of these statistics. In recognition of this difficulty the governmental administrative health services speak in terms of ranges, meaning that for most years the estimated range of low to high can, and often do, vary by a factor of two.

So, even with the most rigorous methods at its disposal, CDC influenza mortality statistics are really educated guesses.

Below CDC’s numbers for the last 9 years

2010-11 - 32,000-51,000

2011-12 - 11,000-23,000

2012-13 - 37,000-57,000

2013-14 - 33,000-50,000

2014-15 - 44,000-64,000

2015-16 - 17,000-35,000

2016-17 - 29,000-61,000

2017-18 - 46,000-95,000

2018-2019 - 26,000-57,000

[source, CDC, Past Seasons Estimated Influenza Disease Burden ]

Note: we contacted CDC’s media relations team, upon their insistence via email. As of this writing that was nearly 8 hours ago. No response and none expected.

And if you think that a semblance of order can be brought to such disparate representations simply by summing them and dividing by two you would be wrong. Though arriving at a hard and fast number might inspire confidence, in the real world it would be misplaced; it wouldn’t be statistically valid. The input data points are so far apart that slapping a number over them would provide a false sense of security, you cannot manipulate bad data into good and in the field of health care bad or more precisely imperfect data is often the best that can be obtained, by way of quantification.

Monetizing Misery: Concert Promoter Global Citizen Paying Huge Salaries

By WILLIAM MAYER

April 12, 2020 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Crisis being the mother’s milk of “cultural transformation” it shouldn’t be surprising that the hysteria surrounding Communist China’s little gift to the world, Wuhan flu, is being further stoked and exploited by the usual suspects - progressive/neo-Marxist/collectivist types, with an eye towards advancing the perpetual agenda that exists beyond the realm of sloganeering. This is the unwritten law that the “issue is never the issue, the issue is always the revolution” - an ideological bon-bon courtesy of the predecessor of Bill Ayer’s murderous Weather Underground, Tom Hayden’s Students for a Democratic Society, by way of David Horrowitz.

Front and center in the current dislocation we find a hard left activist group, Global Citizen - aka Global Poverty Project Inc., heavily promoting a “virtual” concert starring many of pop music’s luminaries scheduled for a April 18 broadcast.

“Global Citizen and the World Health Organization announced One World: Together At Home, a Live Aid-style event designed to celebrate healthcare workers around the globe and to support the U.N. Foundation's COVID-19 Response Fund.. The concert will be broadcast live on TV and on social media Saturday, April 18 at 8 p.m. ET. [see, John Lewis, Global Citizen And WHO Announce 'One World,' A Lady Gaga-Curated Concert Special , NPR]

Partnering with the one-worlders at the WHO?

Ahem…

Leaving the rot coming out of that Chinese outpost aside, it’s clear from the hype surrounding the event that the intent is to convince young people to become [surprise] good “global citizens” rather than having loyalty to their country of birth and finding kinship with its people. Intellectually this is a kind of pan-nationalism, conceptually falling easily upon the ears of the credulous while being murderous in practice.

As is almost always the case when dealing with these lofty sounding do-gooder groups, the nuts and bolts of the operation tend to reveal a moral center that passed rancid a long time ago.

Justification of that damning conclusion naturally flows from even the most cursory examination of how Global Poverty Project’s initial amusingly ambitious goal of ending poverty suddenly morphed into an alphabet-soup catch-all of the left’s “social justice” issue agenda - global citizenship, girls’ and women’s rights, finance and innovation, food and hunger, environment, education and lastly, water and sanitation. How this all hangs together is anyone’s guess, though it does occur to this writer that any organization - especially one that promises to solve every societal “ill,” in the end solves none.

Oddly the left’s source of power, the one that fuels its incessant onslaught against the West, lies in the fact that it never intends to “solve” anything because in so doing it would rapidly eliminate the very agenda items that are used as class-warfare battering rams to foment discord and bring about their hoped for revolution.

Comrade Fauci and Field Marshall Birx - The New High Priests of Scientism
Fools and Fakirs
WILLIAM MAYER

April 7, 2020 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org -  Nothing floats the boat of autocrats more reliably than statistics. This is so because it lends bureaucrats a pretext to speak with a kind of religious authority which would ordinarily be denied them.

We in the West live in an automated, technocratic culture where decisions of all kinds are made according to the vagaries of “big data.” Mathematical in nature, such things as regression analysis and other kinds advanced methods are used to arrive at models that for many, implicitly carry the seal of “certifiably true.”

This method or technique is very handy, for example in manufacturing where it allows corporations to control the overall process in as lean, efficient and profitable a manner as possible.

For example, the United States automobile industry in order to remain economically viable, must bring together at the point of manufacture literally tens of thousands of components and processes. This need be done in order to keep production lines running at a rate consistent with demand. Lacking even the smallest part needed to assemble the final whole, stops the process cold, a reality very much consistent with the ancient proverb, “for want of a nail…the battle was lost, all for the loss of a horse-shoe nail.”

Command of huge amounts of viable data allows manufacturers to keep inventories as low as possible, so that much needed capital isn’t tied up in components [often financed] that in themselves are non-profitable while sitting on shelves. In Detroit [a metaphor, the automobile industry being widely dispersed across the globe] inventories are often kept at a level which will last for only 4 hours! This means that during an 8-hour-shift, entire inventories will be turned twice, supplies arriving no faster than they are consumed - a process that accountants call “just-in-time.”

But producing goods is vastly different from using these same processes to lend an air of empirical truth or veracity to decisions which may well affect the life or death of individual citizens. This process can be seen as a sort of philosophical triage where the well-being of each citizen in contrasted against the amorphous concept – the public good.

The consequences of running out of engine mounts at Chevrolet’s Bowling Green Corvette assembly line shuts things down right now, lost profit and angry customers results. But once the inventory of mounts returns to the proper calculated level, production returns, profits flow and hot-rodders get to do burnouts.

MoveOn.org Stokes Hysteria To Further Deep State Coup Attempt

April 5, 2020 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - This writer is within half-an-hour’s-drive of the Belly of the Beast, Berkeley’s MoveOn coven, so we of course keep close tabs on the Soros funded organization is up to.

Just in:

“Dear MoveOn member,

Last week, in the middle of Donald Trump's mind-bogglingly incompetent handling of the coronavirus pandemic, his approval rating hit 48%—his highest ever.

This wasn't some bogus fly-by-night poll. It was the Washington Post-ABC News poll, one of only six polls rated A+ in the country, according to data expert Nate Silver. And it's part of a trend: Trump's polling averages have been shooting up across the board for weeks.

It's infuriating but true: The coronavirus crisis is helping Trump politically.

Voters are rallying to their leader, while Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders have almost completely disappeared from the news. But there's another problem: Voters don't know how badly Trump has botched the response to this crisis. They don't realize that his mistakes are the reason we have the most COVID-19 cases in the world.

We need to face facts: If things keep going this way, Trump is going to get re-elected. So we've decided to take emergency action. We're aiming to launch and sustain a massive digital ad campaign NOW AND THROUGH ELECTION SEASON, focused on voters who approve of Trump, to educate them about his part in creating this public health disaster.

Trump's poll numbers have risen steadily ever since the crisis broke, and his approval rating is now almost as high as Barack Obama's was at the same point in his presidency.

Socialist Realism - Engineering How Things Should Be
By WILLIAM MAYER

April 4, 2020 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Taking advantage of crises, created or real is the mother’s milk of transformational politics - so much is this the case that it can be used as a metric to sort between classical liberals and those of a totalitarian mindset.

According to the California Globe , during a Sacramento press gaggle a few days ago, when California’s pretty-boy governor Newsom was asked by a Bloomberg reporter about the “opportunity” that the Wuhan hysteria might provide, he replied, “There is opportunity for reimagining a [more] progressive era as it [relates] to capitalism,’ Gov. Newsom said. ‘So yes, absolutely we see this as an opportunity to reshape the way we do business and how we govern.’”

The honesty with which Newsom replied is indicative of how thoroughly ingrained hard-left politics has become among California’s political class, itself a monoculture.

Under more normal circumstances it be might difficult to imagine how much more thoroughly the once great state can become a slave to seditious ideologies, but Wuhan is providing a window into that very dark soul and examples are anything but hard to find.

Item:

“First LA Mayor Eric Garcetti released 1,700 inmates . Then the LA Sheriff tried to shut down all gun stores . Next, Garcetti appointed neighborhood monitors and threatened to shut down electricity and water services to non-compliant citizens. In his most recent action, the mayor admits to using Big Tech to monitor the location of residents and track their coronavirus compliance.” [props, Conservative Treehouse]

Is it madness? Most certainly, but deprived of context, moral necessity for many is devoid of meaning. In this state, the total dominance by practitioners of Marxism-lite have so successfully silenced any form of opposition that there appear to be no contrary opinions at all.

Conservative talk radio is Kryptonite as far as the lefts is concerned. But those of us who listen don’t count really because it is still largely an underground or at least private movement [there being no Rush, Hannity or Levin political parties and hence no center around which to coalesce]. Instead we clandestinely self-identify like the early Christians under Roman Emperor Diocletian’s horrific persecution, huddling together and tracing crude outlines of fish in the dust beneath one another’s feet.

And so we have an entire population under house arrest, with fewer rights than genuine felons under similar circumstances. It doesn’t take much imagination to envision the ACLU successfully petitioning the Ninth Circuit to disallow phone tracking of illegal aliens out on federal immigration bail.

During this created crisis, the people are caught in a rip-tide; the Fed says do “x” while some states say do “y” or “x+y” but no one has a clue as to what metrics these differing, but mandated behavioral modes are based upon. The experts don’t know either, but since they are public health types a zero-tolerance mentality now prevails. This writer has been told by local health department officials that “one death is too much,” which of course is anti-science.

People die every day, 36,000 in 2018 died in automobile accidents, nearly 45,000 desperate souls committed suicide in 2016 and 49,000 died of pneumonia, placing it in the top 10 leading causes of death. “Officials” trot out the zero-tolerance trope at every turn, and they set in motion this death-spiral with a straight-face. In some ways this reminds one of Stalin’s capo Beria, who famously said, “show me the man, I will find you the crime,” any justification will be used to facilitate the dark hand of the Deep State which is currently flexing its muscles in an unprecedented way.

Here We Go, Lefty CA Governor Newsom, Dangles Martial Law, Risks Civil War

“We have the ability to do martial law … if we feel the necessity”

 

By WILLIAM MAYER

April 3, 2020 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - From what this author has seen over just the last two days of the increasing insanity over the Corona virus; the people themselves are trying to go about their business as best as can be expected. By this is meant that there has been zero evidence of civil disorder or any activity that could be translated as being injurious to the public good…that is aside from the deadly policy of instructing police departments NOT to arrest felons.

Despite the reassuring behavior of the public - millions of random acts of kindness - California’s entirely corrupt governing clique is responding to the “crisis” as one would expect from the largest and certainly most blue state in the nation - generally, commies don’t change their stripes overnight.

Instead they act as Newsom’s gangsters already have, grabbing every lever available to further consolidate power under the oligopolistic corporate guidance of Silicon Valley, its venture capitalists and billionaire, soon to be trust funders like Charlie Munger Jr.

This of course is to be expected - leftist ideology and reality seldom being in correspondence.

For practical purposes this means that our pretty-boy potentate who dweleth in Sacramento is so far out of the loop, so utterly disconnected that over the last 12 hours he and his performing-seal minions in the press have floated the notion of martial law in the most populous state in the union, all of which is predicated upon a cooked up virus-scare which has yet to claim 100 people nation-wide and exactly as of this writing, 13 dead in a state of 33 million people.

Even such veiled references should not be allowed to stand, because the prospect of declaring martial law in California might be seen by MILLIONS of freedom-loving, peaceable citizens who happen to own a firearm as a prelude to civil war.

Season of the Anointed

“Cause when the city drops into the night
Before the darkness there's one more ray of light
That’s when everything seems clear
The other side, it seems so near”

[Jim Carroll Band, City Drops in the Night]

By WILLIAM MAYER

April 3, 2020 - San Francisco, CA - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - It had to come, I mean the time when everything - even aborning tyranny - becomes clear as what Jim Carroll wailed about on his first album, Catholic Boy; unfortunately, that time is now and we have been delivered to the sacrificial altar in propitiation to the State, whose hunger is insatiable.

It seems to this author that by now nearly everyone who gets out has observed the little vignettes of madness that are playing out across the country, minor examples of raw animal fear; I can relate two of my own.

Yesterday I had the need to fill a prescription, something generally handled speedily through the mail. But not every medication can be processed this way, for example if a doctor writes a new ‘script for something that needs to be started immediately or is a controlled substance that needs to be picked up personally. No problem, my pharmacy is only a couple miles away, though from talking to the faceless doctor who authorized the prescription it became clear that the HMO [Kaiser Permanente, California’s premiere health care provider] was essentially in lock down remote mode. But I was assured that Kaiser pharmacies would remain open to fill critical need meds, so when I arrived at the pharmacy the next morning I expected a very light patient load, which was a correct assumption.

But what I had not been prepared for was running something of a medical gauntlet. As I crossed the nearly deserted parking lot, there was gaggle of medical workers in full hospital scrubs, gloved and masked, waiting for me apparently, no one else seemingly being around. So I approached the first of these people, Ms. Scrubsuit#1, who stopped me cold and asked why I was there. I explained, that my doc had written a script that was waiting for me so I intended to pick it up if still possible. After what seemed like an uncomfortable few seconds for Ms. Scrubsuit #1 pasted a reflective, ribbon type thing made out of the type of material one sees on roadway signs on the front of my jacket. Ok, no problem, this was obviously a triage station so after being told that I was only to enter the pharmacy and nowhere else I moved on, but quickly was met by Ms. Scrubsuit #2 who asked me the same questions and provided the same guidance. Great, I was near the entrance, where I met Ms. Scrubsuit #s 3 and 4, yeah, same deal I was getting good at this. Finally I was in the hallowed hallway with the pharmacy a quick left just inside the auto-sliding doors, but not so fast.

There I was set upon by Mr. Scrubsuit #1 whose scrub top had been tailored to accentuated his rather large set of gym-rat guns. Fine, he approached, but was neither smiling nor friendly, and directed me to take the entrance that was only a few feet away. I guess I didn’t sufficiently acknowledge his advanced musculature, a lot of tension was building for some reason. Inside the pharmacy were maybe half-a-dozen patients. I started queueing up for the first of what is a two-stage system, again, no-problem, new scripts need to be started through that particular location since the scripts can be claimed at any Kaiser pharmacy, of which there are many. Mr. Scrubsuit#1 placed himself in front of me and motioned to get into another line, I thought he might grab my arm which is to me, a no-no, so I told him I knew what I was doing and that I had to do this before getting in the other line to purchase the med. He backed off a bit, but was sending out this funny vibe. After the clerk took my order I sat down and waited for my name to show up on a lighted display. I noted that every other seat had a “Do Not” placard on it, I guess in recognition of “social distancing.” Wonderful, name up, I had won the prescription lottery of sorts, but as I rose, ready to complete the transaction, Mr. Scrub again came to my side as if to guide me to the line that I was already essentially in, that was it I was tired of his glowering presence and told him a little loudly, “back off pal, you need an attitude adjustment, “ and walked around him.

Purchase in hand I once again was confronted by him as I left, an act I simply ignored and side-stepped.

Free at last? Woaahhhh horsie, not so fast.

In Government There Is Never Accountability


April 1, 2020 - San Francisco, CA - When dealing with the type of vastly consequential questions that require, almost by definition, some manner of federal-state-local governmental partnership, perhaps the most important question, that of accountability is almost meaningless, since government is never held to account.

That should strike most as a truism and therefore not require further explication, but just in case you are skeptical, proof by example.

If this were not the case, then a very long list of genuinely malign people - Hillary Clinton, John Brennan, James Comey, Cheryl Mills, Lisa Page, Peter Strzok, John McCabe, Adam Schiff, Lois Lerner, Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch, high ranking members of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, et al. - would all be in federal prison, not simply on charges of malfeasance, but rather on the much more serious charge of sedition, conducting a conspiracy against the American people, to wit, an attempted coup against the President of the United States that would have overturned the results of the last presidential election.

Those who man the ramparts of government along with their Deep State partners, not only seldom if ever go to jail, they are not even held to the most lenient standard of account - dismissal and forfeiture of government pensions, unless of course you are a GOPer or high visibility conservative.

Witness Paul Manafort rotting in jail while his business partner Rick Gates walks a free man, as Weather Underground terrorist, Bill Ayers quipped about his own legal invincibility, “guilty as sin, free as a bird.”

Now, all of this rotates around the concept of the Deep State. Since this author has written books about the phenomenon an in-depth explanation will, as a U.S. Senator might claim, “use as many words as I may consume.”
